Eurasenior and its ecosystem of partners offer silver economy entrepreneurs a complete range of support services to develop and accelerate their projects. The Eurasenior Incubator, initiated and run by Eurasanté, is a first in Europe to offer a unique support model to innovative project leaders in the region in favour of better aging. The incubator already supports 16 start-ups. Its ambition is to support 85 new silver economy projects and the creation of 25 companies by 2025.

An incubator dedicated to the healthy ageing sector

In response to the challenges of an ageing world population, many initiatives have been launched to structure clusters around the ageing sector to foster innovation in this field.

Many general and health incubators exist, offering support for AgeTech projects. However, AgeTech project leaders need targeted support to refine their offer in response to the many needs to be met, to consolidate their business model, and to establish themselves in a highly competitive market. These projects also have a strong need for experimentation and co-construction with potential users as well as to test their business model in this sector where the solvency of demand is complex.

2020 revealed new needs to break the isolation of seniors while preserving their health. As such, this health crisis offers new opportunities for project leaders wishing to launch their own business. This dynamic is also part of a favourable context linked to the creation of a new branch dedicated to autonomy in the French Social Security system, with a 2021 budget of 31.6 billion euros to support the autonomy of the elderly or disabled.
